Just Awful
3 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

Why anyone would want to scantily dress little children, put them in adult situations and call this entertainment is beyond me. I mistakenly got this on DVD from Netflix as I thought it was a documentary of her early films. The quality is horrible and no entertainment value at all- Totally weird!!! I have a feeling that even Shirley would cringe at the thought that these early 'films' were released on DVD. There are so many better Shirley Temple films, yet those are not out on DVD, but this junk is! Go Figure????? I would love to see a boxed set of some of her later films when she was still a teen-ager. I think the movie studios need to get their act together and give us some of the films that were never released on VHS-
